Guess The Airline – May 2005 answer

Every month, an airline printed advertisement, minus airline name and logo, is displayed for your guessing pleasure on Guess The Airline. The following is the answer to a previous game.

I can see that the people who recognized the airline in this ad were very enthusiastic, as a lot of memories all came back. The others… were just mixed up by the “sunny” references in the advertisement. This month, we had an ad published in the late 1970s. Ready? Scroll down!

(NA) National Airlines advertisement titled: 'National. Now one of the big 3 U.S. airlines to Europe', from the 1970s, featuring a flight attendant surrounded by policemen from different European countries.

How to guess it?

The clues were there, but very briefly. Remember: the text says they are “The Sunshine Airline”. They were the third U.S. trans-atlantic carrier, and flew to all these destinations out of the Southeastern coast of the United States in the 1970s… before being swallowed by Pan Am.

Of course, a viewer found a version of the ad on the National Sundowners website.
